Description 

Originally called The Gong Show because of the hollow sounding flakes, this route has over time become known as The Beast. Start on the obvious, steeply overhanging hand crack, slam in a #1 or #2 Camalot and keep moving to the first bolt (optional add'l gear). This is pretty bouldery for a crack. Clip both bolts above, climbing through a sequential crux, and run it out on jugs to the anchor. Blow it up there and you'll get some nice air time.

This was .11b until some holds broke. Its not much harder now, but more sustained. There are some hollow flakes.


Location 

In the middle of the cliff, above a big yellow rock you can sit on. Left of Jason.


Protection 

1 each .5"-2" cams. Two lead bolts and a two bolt anchor.
